Union Hockey vs. Clarkson, Game 2 ECAC Playoffs First Round - March 7, 2009
The third period that ended the long, long playoff drought.
Union is in a good but far from comfortable position to start the third.
Luke Cain (10), Jon Lareau (22), Lauri Tuohimaa (27).
Save by Milan.
Kelly Zajac (21), Brock Matheson (6), Corey Milan (31, goaltender), Stephane Boileau (25), Lane Caffaro (23).
Jon Lareau (22), Mike Schreiber (5).
Andrew Buote (14) ready for a faceoff.
Union goal down on the other end.
Then Clarkson is back to work.
Jason Shaffer (16) battles in the corner.
Union has a 3-goal lead late, but with some penalty trouble.
After Clarkson got one on a 5-on-3 (plus a 6th skater with the goaltender on the bench), Union scored an empty-netter by Andrew Buote to get back the 3-goal cushion.
It's finally starting to look like it could really happen.
And another empty-netter by Buote, this time shorthanded as well, wraps things up.
But the scoring isn't over. Senior captain Matt Cook got one last power play goal to give Union the final 7-2 edge.
The final seconds tick off and Union will finally win a playoff series!
